What a terrific page. As an ex R/O 1974 to 1991 it certainly brought back the memories and talking in CW with Dave Nancarrow the operator on the video today on 7Mhz was brilliant. What a brilliant "fist" on that lovely straight key! I must have worked Dave many times at GLD in the seventies. It was always so good to first hear GLD on 500 when crossing the Atlantic west to East, you knew you were getting close to home! Dave directed me to this site which I had not stumbled across before. Certainly brought a tear to the eye! Loved Ostend radio's comment "Old stations never die they just fade away"! Long live morse code gentlemen 73 de G4BSW

Landsend Radio (GLD) Final W/T Transmission on 500 Khz
Absolutely Brilliant Morse from David J Nancarrow (G3RID). Reminds me so much of when I was in the Far East on HMS Manxman (GBNF) and had to call ship/shore and invariably GYL, GXO, and sometimes GKL using a straight key, and having to send 500 groups or more. David's morse is absolutely perfect and even though I preach to new beginners who want to receive morse, make sure you write it down. However, once you are proficient like David and I, you can read it in your head and still answer the call with absolute clarity. Listening to your last transmissions David on 500 Khz all those years ago, brings tears to my eyes. Well Done!
